The POTUS was praised on social media after he dragged the governors of Mississippi and Texas for doing the unthinkable amid the pandemic and reopening these two states! Furthermore, they even cancelled the use of protective masks and so, Joe Biden made his feelings about this very clear!
The President did not hold anything back during his March 3 press chat!
At some point, he was asked to share his thoughts on Republican Governors Greg Abbott of Texas and Tate Reeves of Mississippi deciding it was a good idea to reopen all of the business in their states and even dropping the face mask wearing requirements, giving the residents the freedom to not wear a mask at all without any legal repercussions.
Joe Bide, who still puts on a mask every time he is in public despite having received the vaccine, told reporters that those politicians have ‘Neanderthal thinking.’
He stated that ‘I think it’s a big mistake. I hope everyone realizes by now these masks make a difference. We’re on the cusp of being able to change the nature of this disease in the way we’ve been able to get vaccines in people’s arms.’
Biden noted that, by the end of May, it’s expected that America will have enough vaccine for everyone!
‘The last thing — the last thing we need is such Neanderthal thinking that in the meantime, everything is fine, take off your mask, just forget it. It still matters,’ the President stressed, adding that he actually carries a card in his pocket with the total number of COVID-19 victims.
With that being said, he revealed that, as of the day before, the death toll among the American population was 511,874.
This will NOT age well, though the media will do their best to forget about it.
Assuming Texas/Mississippi fair just fine, the 2022 GOP campaign should be focused 100% on Biden believing that freedom from a virus, when a very good vaccine is available, is “Neanderthal Thinking”!

‘It’s critical — critical, critical, critical — that they follow the science: Wash your hands, hot water, do it frequently. Wear a mask and stay socially distanced. And I know you all know that. I wish the heck some of our elected officials knew it.’
Many Twitter users applauded the POTUS’ words, responding with comments like ‘that’s my president’ and ‘damn right!’
